Top dogs Remo and Flo are winners for Devon owners at Crufts
Two local dog owners are celebrating after winning awards at Crufts.
Remo, a four-year-old Cirneco dell'Etna, proved every dog does have its day after walking away with a top prize.
Remo was one of over 25,000 dogs at Birmingham's NEC, presented by the Kennel Club, which is celebrating 140 years of promoting healthy, happy dogs, and claimed the prestigious Best of Breed award.
Owner Michelle Farleigh, from Exmouth, fought off competition from a number of other dogs to scoop the Any Variety Important Registered Hound category.

Mrs Farleigh, 57, said: "This was the first ever time a category has been run for import dogs, so to win is just fantastic. Remo is such a placid and lovely dog, he loves running on the beach in Exmouth and he loves chasing rabbits! I'm so proud of him and he loved being out in the arena."
Meanwhile Flo, a two-year-old Pointer, claimed the prestigious Junior Warrant Winner of the Year award.
Owner Amelia Siddle, from Honiton, fought off competition from a number of other dogs to scoop the coveted prize, beating the other nine finalists following the year-long competition.
And 21-year-old Amelia was left beaming with pride at her and Flo's performance. "I have been coming to Crufts for longer than I can remember, pretty much all my life," she said.
"It is awesome to win the competition. There are various stages throughout the year and you get judged various times before the final here so it has been quite a journey to get here. But Flo is a great dog."
